And What of the Grand Duke?

"Well, I suppose that's that, Hives," quipped the Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II at the conclusion of the battle.  "Frightfully good show, but ol' von Tschatschke had an easy time of it though if you ask me.  Still, places to go, and people to see, eh Hives?  Come along now!  There's a cobbler back up the road in Kaunitz who has promised to measure my feet for a pair of whole-cut riding boots.  We mustn't keep him waiting."  Figures in this vignette are all by Minden with a Foundry barrel at the foot of the signpost and a unit of 1/72 Revell plastic infantry in the background.

Well spoken, Sir Irwin-Amadeus - this I call coolness, caring about new shoes after having fought a battle ...
Wonderful vignette and splendid uniform colours - waht a joy to look at!
Good idea with diffrent scales in one picture, using the perspective!

Thanks for a great battle, real wargaming at its best.

Thanks for posting this report - just got back from holiday and caught up with the action.
Thanks also for the heads-up on Phil's new blog - big fan of his work and thinking so seeing all the old bits again is great.
Have fun, Jeremy
